It doesn't take a crystal ball to predict lots of these will be in circulation very soon. At the price, my cons should probably be presented in a smaller font to better reflect their significance.

    Small, cheap, desirable battery-powered analogues., Beats: Great mix of sounds, especially the kick and hi-hats. Innovative Stutter effect is welcome, as is the very performance-oriented sequencer., Keys: Extensive motion control. Useful pseudo-polyphony and ring modulation.

    Is 'playing it a bit safe' a con?, Beats: No accent or response to dynamics., Keys: 'Zero start' envelopes. Deserves a better delay. No step-time recording., Bass: No accent or motion control.

Korg's Volca range previewed at MusikMesse showing once again that Korg really mean business when it comes to new analogue. Roland must surely be concerned, especially as the model on review here, the Volca Beats, is obviously inspired by it's classic 808 machine. Let's see how worried it should be!

Fun in a little box! A real analog drum for a small price. The only thing missing is an audio input, so we chain others volca.

Intuitive and portable. Works well in live applications as well as in the studio. Being able to access and manipulate multiple parameters at the same time (mute control of instrument parts, fx, and part pitch / speed) makes it handy for live performance.

    Compact, Intuitive, Sounds good

Product Description
Following in the footsteps of the monotron, monotribe, and MS-20 Mini analog synthesizers, Korg announces the Volca series. volca is a new lineup of EDM production tools. These powerful and fun-to-use true-analog devices deliver a diverse array of fat sounds that can be obtained only from an analog synthesizer. Each is also equipped with sequencing/recording capabilities for intuitively generating performances. Multiple volcas can be used in tandem via the vintage-style sync in/out, and with your favorite DAW software or MIDI keyboard via MIDI In. Battery operation and built-in speakers mean that you can conveniently play anywhere and anytime. These are the next-generation analog synthesizers, bringing you the ultimate sounds and grooves with ease and depth. Whether used together or by themselves, the volca series is poised to inject true analog power into any performance or studio setup!Even today, more than thirty years after the age dominated by analog synthesizers, we just can't let go of the sound of analog rhythm machines. Those thick sounds have the power to stand up to guitar and acoustic drums, and are still indispensable for track-making or live performance. The volca Beats gives you those analog drums plus the easy-to-use step sequencer of the Electribe; it lets you turn your inspiration into reality and generate beats with the best high quality sounds.
